    Can't really comment on the food as I don't eat there either. I have only had coffee there. I will say it is alright, it is a little on the cool side but otherwise it is alright.

    I wish there were more healthy eating options available that were also affordable to a student. Luckily there are lots of local eating options down the street.

    Food here is economical, but a bit overpriced for the quality. Being so close to a bunch of restaurants i rarely eat at the college.

    The food is a little overpriced, but not bad. I wish that the coffee stand in the science building was open summer quarter. Most the time I chose not to eat on campus, unless I'm desperate.

    The cafes on campus are run by a company name Sodexo. The facilities are nice as are the employees. The food is above average quality for a small college.

    The food is amazing here and they have many different types of foods here as well. They have coffee shops around campus as well as microwaves and dining area to heat up food and eat.
